Some Autumn Photos

Sunset above the clouds

This time of year it gets difficult to find/ride “new” climbs. And I try not to keep re-blogging the same routes over and over again. But I do, of course, keep cycling. Always with my camera and little tripod.

So here are a few favourite photos from the last few weeks that might not have appeared in a post here.

Trying to be artsy under a bridge in the Geneva country-side:

Yep, more neighbours:

A few pics of my standard home loop up Mont Salève:

It’s “inversion” season. Often it’s dark, wet, cloudy down low but the sun is only a climb away. Two Salève photos: above the clouds, near home.

My brave wife Doreen climbing through Geneva Vineyards:

More sunsets:



And I’ll finish with my favourite. The love of my life Doreen hay surfing:

Happiest while cycling uphill.


  1. I have just found your site, and it’s brilliant.
    A wealth of information and great pictures!
    Can I ask, what camera you use?

    Many thanks

    • Hi, lately I’ve been using a Canon S120 – all the above photos are with this.

      It’s a nice portable camera. Small, decent quality, AND I like that it has up to a 30 second timer …. helps with these self portraits 🙂
